Opening DSC files

Did your computer fail to open a DSC file? We explain what DSC files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your DSC files.

What is a DSC file?

Files with the .dsc file extension store information about photographs that have been taken with a Nikon Coolpix digital camera. These files are saved on the camera's memory card along with the corresponding image files.

DSC files do not contain any actual image data. They only contain information about the image that the file pertains to, so these files are usually relatively small in size.

The Softimage 3D software also uses the .dsc file extension. This software is used to create 3D modeling and animation for the entertainment industry. The DSC files that are used by this software contain 3D scenes that have been created by the application.
